DSLR Tutorial: How to get the Filmlook & what you're doing wrong!

Batman Returns - Creating the Penguin makeup for Danny DeVito Stan Winston and Tim Burton, having previously collaborated on EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, reteamed to create another iconic character for BATMAN RETURNS, Burton's second exploration of the Batman mythology, after his 1989 film, BATMAN. In Batman Returns, the Dark Knight — again played by Michael Keaton — fights attempts by the Penguin (Danny DeVito) to take control of Gotham City. Winston’s primary task was to design and build a makeup for the Penguin, creating an appropriately over-the-top Burtonesque look, without entirely obliterating DeVito’s features. Key SWS concept artist, Mark "Crash" McCreery rendered Penguin features over sketches of DeVito; then, working from those drawn concepts, 25-year SWS supervisors and co-founders of Legacy Effects, John Rosengrant and Shane Mahan, experimented with a variety of nose shapes, applying them to a shell made from a lifecast of the actor. Pictured above: SWS concept artist Mark "Crash" McCreery's renderings of Danny DeVito as Penguin. -Jody Duncan

Jon Favreau Interviews Martin Scorsese About Filmmaking, Editing & Directing. How to take photos of the stars - part 1 ~ HDR photographer Note: this is part 1 of the tutorial. Click here to read part 2. You can also proceed to part 3 by clicking here. So I'm finally writing what I promised a few days ago - a tutorial on taking photos of the starry skies. Photos of the starry sky typically fall into one of the two categories: stars where the stars and the galaxy are sharp, star trails where the the apparent motion of the stars is captured. Equipment First of all I need to write a few words about necessary equipment. Another useful accessory might be additional batteries. Choosing location Before you start taking any shots it is very import you research the location during the day. Another thing you will have to avoid is moon. One more thing which is good to avoid are clouds. Also make sure to start taking photos a few hours after sunset when it is completely dark. Setting up Before taking any photos: If you decide to focus on the stars you will need to set your focus to infinity. Taking photos Post-processing

The Visual Development of Bonsai Slice Anyone who has ever poured themselves into a massive project knows that where you think you'll end up is never ever where you actually end up. Such is the case with Bonsai Slice, I game I worked on for over two years with my crew at Playground Theory. The final game as it looked on release day. Before I take you on this magical artistic journey of rejected concepts, stupid ideas, and long-winded rants, make sure to grab your copy of Bonsai Slice, which is free for both iPhone and iPad. Go ahead... Downloaded it? The Playground Theory office in San Francisco. I mentioned before that I worked on Bonsai Slice for over 2 years, serving mainly as art director. Somewhere in November of 2012, we built this mechanic that allowed the player to "chop wood" using their iPad in real time. Early vector work for the logs and axe. For most of our game concepts, my process was usually the same. Before we jumped into any 3D animation, I'd mash together a gif. Early concept of the robot character. POOF.
